Commenting on this landmark order for 20 Airbus A350-1000 aircraft was Delta Air Lines CEO Ed Bastian:

“The A350-1000 will be the largest, most capable aircraft in Delta’s fleet and is an important step forward for our international expansion”.

“The aircraft complements our fleet and offers an elevated customer experience, with more premium seats and best-in-class amenities, as well as expanded cargo capabilities.”

Adding to this was Airbus sales chief Christian Scherer:

“We are thankful for Delta’s continued confidence in Airbus’ solutions to meet its fleet needs”.

“Delta now welcomes the A350-1000, which will open even more opportunities for the airline and its customers.”

“We are proud that our aircraft serve the entirety of Delta’s impressive global network as this stellar airline takes fleet efficiency to the next level.”

Also in the statement, the airline stated what the uses for the Airbus A350-1000 will be for, as deliveries begin from 2026:

“The aircraft will primarily be operated in long-haul markets and international hubs in support of Delta’s international expansion, replacing retiring planes and fueling growth.”

“Delta continues to grow its global footprint and is expecting to operate the largest international schedule in its history this year.”

Overall, this is a good start to the year from Airbus, as they aim to continue their sales momentum on a strong footing.
